Jan 5th, 2021 by paulwellerfanpod
This week, I am joined by Ben Taylor, AKA 'The Magic Mod' - not only is he Rock n' Roll's favourite musician - Ben is a massive Paul Weller fan - who has accompanied Paul and the band on tour and in the studio at Black Barn.
Celebrating the modern world subculture, Liam Gallagher claims, “he is the best dressed magician about.”
Being the only magician to tour with various bands and artists, Ben has made The Magic Mod a well known name around the indie music scene. Having accompanied the likes of the Libertines, Pete Doherty, Paul Weller and Reverend and the makers at sold out gigs and festivals (namely, Isle of Wight festival), performing a well-received show to thousands at any one time.
As well as having numerous TV appearances under his belt, Ben also has a documentary made about his journey through magic. The documentary features famous supporters such as Vicky McClure (This is England), Johnny Owen, Martin Freeman and The Magic Mods’ biggest supporter, Paul Weller.
